#7 Crumble Capsule Trays

#7 Crumble Capsule Trays

Welcome to Day 7 of our 100 Days 100 Designs challenge! Today, we’re excited to share our latest creation – the “Capsule Crumble Trays” featuring a unique crumble effect with stunning red and gold hues.

Materials Used:

1. Capsule Moulds / Petri Dish Moulds

2. Clear Cling Film

3. Candy Stick

4. Haksons Pearl Pigment: Posh Red, Maharaja Gold

5. Haksons Black Opaque Pigment

6. Resin: Haksons Prime Cast (3:1)

Step-by-Step Process:

1. Preparing the Mould:

We started by taking two capsule moulds. We poured a layer of clear resin into each mould.

2. Creating the Crumble Effect:

Next, we cut clear cling film slightly larger than the size of the mould and placed it in each one. Using a candy stick, we created a crumble effect by gently pressing and manipulating the cling film.

3. Curing:

We let the resin cure with the cling film in place.

4. Brushing with Pearl Pigments:

After curing, we brushed Haksons Pearl pigment in Posh Red over the crumble effect in one mould. For the second mould, we used Maharaja Gold.

5. Pouring the Black Resin:

We then poured resin mixed with Haksons black opaque pigment over the brushed surfaces.

6. De-moulding:

After the resin cured, we de-moulded the trays to reveal the perfect crumble effect.

Mistakes / Things We Could Do Better:

1. Bubble Issues:

Some resin came over the cling film, causing bubbles. Additionally, there were bubbles between the cling film and resin that showed through.

2. Black Pigment Intensity:

We didn’t make the black opaque pigment super black, resulting in a slightly translucent appearance. Ensuring the black is fully opaque would improve the overall look.


Creating these Capsule Crumble Trays was a fun and insightful process. By following the steps above and learning from our mistakes, you can create your own unique and stunning trays. Don’t forget to check the link in our bio for more detailed tips and insights!
